Let me first start by clarifying that this is of course my opinion and even though I’m using elements to back up my thoughts, there is nothing to say that a ship is canon unless the company who makes it comes out and says it. This is just how I perceive the content that we have been given.
My first point is that I definitely do not believe that Sonic “dislikes” Amy, which is often the argument used against this pairing. Sonic definitely is not a fan of her antics, but at no point has he ever stated that he dislikes her. In fact, he has shown time and time again that he is concerned about her and gets passionately angry when she is mistreated:
Now if you’re purely talking in-game content only, I get that Sonic avoids Amy when she hassles him. However, there are a few games where you actually have an option to romance Amy:
In fact, in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood there is an entire sub-plot where you literally just romance Amy if you so choose [x]. (He’s also sort of “dated” Amy in Sonic & the Black Knight, but that will be mentioned later). I know Sonic is a huge flirt in the games and at least one female falls for him in almost every game, but still the fact that you can ACTUALLY ROMANCE AMY as an option is a huge step from just being a nuisance.
I also find it a little interesting at the way these two interact when they’re alone compared to when they’re around other people. Whenever they’re in public and surrounded by their friends, that’s when we see Sonic most adamantly against Amy being all over him and being affectionate:
However, whenever they’re alone they get along very well and in fact Sonic seems much more attached to her
In fact there’s this recurring pattern that hints at this hidden relationship that we as the audience aren’t even allowed to see. In some of the games we are informed that Sonic has planned dates with Amy but for one reason or another isn’t able to show up:
or that he is interested in her but it never gets answered:
In Sonic Boom, there are so many hints that Sonic and Amy are very close, but we only ever see glimpses or the aftermath. In fact, the way they act so comfortable around each other seems more like the result of already being in a relationship and getting past those awkward jitters and obsessive phases. They are constantly in each other’s company and at each other’s side
And of course, let’s not forget to mention the 2 most ambiguous sonamy moments in history
Seriously, what is happening there?!
In the Japanese version they blank out the audio so you don’t know what Sonic is saying. Clearly it is something important and to Amy’s liking based on her reaction. But we aren’t allowed to know, because I think Sonic wouldn’t want us to know (until a later episode where they address it). (Also, quick side note, isn’t it interesting that the first thing Sonic does once returning to his home planet is go to Amy’s house?
He could do anything else but that’s the first place he goes to).
We all know Sonic is not interested in settling down. He has to always be on the move, always keep going. But at least Amy understands this. <–(ty to greenyvertekins for this set)
Instead of forcing Sonic to stop doing what he loves or sacrifice his passions for her, she instead is the one who chooses to follow him through it all or will wait for him while he is away
This is a huge deal for her, because we’ve already known through several instances that she does not enjoy fighting Eggman and would rather move on with her life, but she knows that as long as there is danger, that will never be the case:
Which I personally think goes back to that previous thing I talked about with the whole “secret relationship” going on. If Sonic ever decided he was interested in dating, he certainly could not go public with it–at least not for a very long time. How could he, with Eggman constantly getting in the way?
Amy is already constantly used as bait by enemies as it is, so if Sonic were ever to show that he is romantically involved with Amy, she would be in more danger than ever
I also think there has been this huge growth on Amy’s part. Though yes she is still obsessive and extreme with her emotions, her feelings have matured with every passing game and show and I think that is something that Sonic is starting to notice as well. We started with this little girl who was head over heels unabashadly claiming that Sonic is the one she is going to marry
to someone who now, though evidently cares for Sonic very much, feels so strongly that she can’t even bring herself to say it aloud
She has pushed herself to stop being someone who waits for someone to save her and instead now shows that she can handle anything that Sonic can handle so that he will see her on the same level.
As I’ve stated before, I don’t think Sonic will ever end up tied down with anyone in canon. But, if he did, I think Amy is the only person who would truly be right for him. She is the only one who has proven that she can keep up with him and stands up for him no matter what the situation is, and surprisingly is the most understanding about the way he thinks and feels. I think Sonic and Amy just have this ongoing connection that just gets stronger and stronger with time, even if they never fully cross that barrier.

Today, the DX version of Sonic: Nazo Unleashed hit 10 million views in under 2 years!
This is one of the big reasons I am making the Wrath of Nazo, the amount of support and interest in something I made 10 years ago (but reuploaded as a full piece 2 years ago) is awesome! Nazo still gets this much interest, good and bad, young and old(er) and I don’t know if I’ll ever make something popular on my own-ish again, so I thank you all who continue to make my silly Sonic fan cartoons relevant!
